“we only have one future,
and it will be made of ouR

– Soichiro Honda

A dream is a view of the world not as it is, but as it could be. For over 60 years, Honda has encouraged its associates to aim

beyond what is currently possible. All for the purpose of progressing human mobility. This spirit has resulted in advances in

environmental technology, like the hydrogen fuel cell FCX Clarity, that brings us closer to a future filled with blue skies. It

guides us as we strive to exceed government safety regulations and has led to industry-changing innovations on the ground, in the water, and, with

the HondaJet, in the air. And it pushes us to use premier

race circuits as testing grounds for our ideas. Moving forward,

our minds are open to new ideas,no matter where they come from. Because you never know what will be until you

discover what can be.
